This is the mugshot used in the article that I saw.

I haven’t seen a “recent” picture of him in awhile.

 

He will probably die in jail.  Even if he doesn’t, he’ll be very old by the time he’s released.  I can’t say that I feel too bad about that.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Thanks Zig.  I still don’t get what the actual thing is though, and why it’s a “challenge”…

BBC report on Chapman being denied parole. An excerpt reads

The parole board said the murder of the famous British musician and former member of The Beatles “devastated a family and those who loved the victim”.

“Your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime as to undermine respect for the law,” the board said.

Chapman can reapply for parole in two years.

And if he does get released (won’t happen, but let’s say something bizarre happened and it did), you know someone will retaliate and do, or attempt to do, to Chapman what Chapman did to John. And the “eye for an eye” mindset really makes everyone blind, so they say.

Okay, here’s a great story Bob Eubanks shared tonight at the Bowl. He produced the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl, fifty years ago.

The Beatles always asked for a case of Dr. Pepper on ice in their dressing room. Okay, no problem. As they’re leaving the stage (Hollywood Bowl, 50 years ago tonight), John Lennon says, “We’re Dr. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” And…shortly thereafter wrote that as a song. But the studio balked for obvious legal reasons — the makers of Dr. Pepper would probably want a piece of the album. So John changed it to Sgt. Pepper . But if you listen to the song and think Dr. Pepper, it makes a whole other kind of sense.

Bob Eubanks swears this is a true story. Even if it isn’t, it should be.

Going to the Hollywood Bowl concert tonight! I’ll let you know if anything particularly awesome happens!

Stella McCartney did the ice bucket challenge with Chris Martin.

I was hoping someone would challenge Paul and/or Ringo. ;->

I saw it! Wonder if he’ll do it and what he’ll make of it if he does it. I’ve seen a few pretty funny ones, like the one Benedict Cumberbatch did. The Foo Fighters take the crown though.

Are his claims based on two peoples memories of an event that had happened 50 years previously? I think i wont be holding my breath over this one.

The latest edition of New Statesman (left wing UK magazine) has several Beatles features. I haven’t seen the inside yet.

New Statesman, incidentally, is mentioned by Jeremy in Yellow Submarine . “Down the hatch. A quite curious phrase. The middle South Midlands Victorian phase. Its usage undoubtedly on the increase. I must work it into my New Statesman piece.”

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports:

Previously unseen photos of the Beatles’ 1964 visit to Cincinnati will be released for sale in October.

Cincinnati photographer Walt Burton, now 80, shot about 200 pictures of the Beatles – from their arrival at Lunken Airport to performing at Cincinnati Gardens on Aug. 27, 1964 – for use in the souvenir “Beatles in Cincinnati” 24-page magazine-style booklet sold by WSAI-AM after the concert.

Nice one, C.R.A.

The shots of them on stage show them dripping with perspiration. I could not imagine playing music in a full suit in at atmosphere not climate-controlled.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

A couple of wogblog articles.

1‘ appears to be getting a re-release on vinyl.

And it also reports the new master reel of the ‘Please Please Me ‘ mono album which Father McCartney posted on 3 posts further up in this thread.

* Diana Krall‘s next album will have a song by Paul, “If I Take You Home Tonight,” left over from the Kisses On The Bottom sessions.

 

* From USA Today and a couple of other sources:

Paul McCartney reissues delayed
Production issues will delay the reissue of two of Paul McCartney ‘s ’70s albums with Wings. Venus And Mars and At the Speed of Sound now will come out Nov. 4 instead of the previously announced September dates.

McCartney recorded 1975’s Venus And Mars with Wings in New Orleans, Los Angeles and London. It included the single Listen to What the Man Said. The reissue will include recordings from Nashville sessions around the same time that yielded the 1974 Junior’s Farm/Sally G single.

The follow-up, 1976’s At the Speed of Sound, included the singles Let ‘Em In and Silly Love Songs. The new package will include several demos and a version of the song Beware My Love featuring Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

McCartney’s archival series has won the former Beatle two Grammys already. In 2012, the Band On The Run reissue was named best historical album, and the live Wings Over America won set boxed or special edition package this year.

 

[x-posted to the Archive Collection thread, where MMM has also posted a WogBlog link]

Filmed on the 19th August 1980 for possible use in promotional music video’s for the new album the footage went unused and was believed to have been destroyed by John however at least some of it has survived. 

Additional information can be read here.

Fantastic find! I love love LOVE old clips of record stores – always pausing and zooming to see how many favourites (or non-favourites) I can identify (“Pearl”, “Curtis”, “Sly & The Family Stone’s Greatest Hits”! Cannonball Adderley’s “Something Else”!!)

Man, to imagine a time when a record store had actual Kaleidoscope and Juicy Lucy and (who?) Katmandu sections…

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

The Tower Records footage is from 1971, 10 minutes 41 seconds of the footage which can be seen here. John’s advert is from September 1974.

 

Wogblog reports that KOOL-98.3 FM, a radio station in Atlantic City, is to air the full 30 minute concert The Beatles played in the Convention Hall in commemoration of its 50th anniversary this coming Saturday (30th August) from 6:15pm having recently discovered the tape. As far as i know the concert has never been booted. 

The set-list, as throughout the tour, was
